Mine does the same ocassionally. I think it is because the locks are getting old and probably require lubricating. It seems to be worse in cold weather. I would suggest taking the door panels off and having a good poke around the locks. People have said to me not to use wd40 but I cannot see why not, I have and have not had any additional problems. You are supposed to lube locks with powdered graphite but who's got that in their toolkit ??


Alright Barry boy,

Sorry I don't know.


HELP! I've got an 1989 M3 Cecotto with a very annoying locking problem. Whenever I lock the car either manually or via the alarm nothings happens. All I get is a short buzzing noise from the drivers footwell. I've found whats making the noise (Crash Sensor) and replaced it (94!!!) but this new sensor doe's exactly the same, just vibrates? Has anyone had this problem before.
